Is p > q?

(1) $$\frac{p}{q} > 1$$

(2) $$\frac{(p-q)}{q} > \frac{(p-q)}{p}$$

Neither of the statements gives us any information about the sign of p and q. Both the statements are insufficient to answer.

As per statement 1 : p>0 and q>0 or p<0 and q<0
Not sufficient

As per statement 2 : same as above

As per both the statements : same as above
